There is not KDE edition, but I suggest to install any iso image and then install KDE via Synaptic, APT or APTus.
A special edition meta package can be installed on the top of any desktop.

Pavroo, BTW (just curious) .... any particular motive WHY there wont´t be an Sparky 5 KDE? ......   

I like KDE, it's a nice desktop useful to ease the transition from windowze to Linux ....  and personally I like the aesthetics...

Just to ensure everyone correctly install KDE, even if sparky do not have a package for it in the future, as a Debian direct derivation (that uses Debian as main repositories) Sparky users can always rely on it's packages, so here it is a KDE install guide for Debian version (no matter witch flavor you are, stable, testing or development):
